1938 Yiddish Film Classic with New English Subtitles
NEW DIGITAL RESTORATION
"Even if you know nothing about Yiddish culture, here are words to live by: Anything with Molly Picon is worth seeing. Mamele, Joseph Green’s marvelous comic melodrama finds the vastly talented actress taking care of her underemployed, unappreciative siblings and father. Made in Poland in 1938, when life was terrible for Jews and about to get unimaginably worse, Mamele screens in a new restoration."
– KQED Critic’s Pick, You Say Schlemiel, I Say Shlemazel
Set in Lodz, this musical comedy drama, which features Picon's trademark song Abi Gezunt, embraces the diverse gamut of interwar Jewish life in Poland, with its nogoodniks and unemployed, nightclubs and gangsters, and religious Jews celebrating Succoth.
